27 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite players: Kramnik, Morozevich, Hou Yifan, Wei Yi, and of course Carlsen. Least favorite: anyone who acts like a classless jerk, meaning Topalov, Mamedyarov, and Nakamura. Also, Leko, who really should be a checkers (or tic-tac-toe) player.

dumbgai: I don't know much about Maurice Ashley, but he doesn't deserve to be called something like that if his only crime is prize money distribution. You might disagree with him, but that doesn't make him a bad guy. As for college grad/Kamsky, I think <vkk> is pointing out that ...

dumbgai: Hou Yifan live rating is now 2665, putting her in the world's top 100 overall and just 11 points behind Polgar.

dumbgai: 5/10 against 2300 opposition, including 4 losses. Not a good result. Declining the Evans Gambit with Bb6 backfired badly today.
   Jul-15-14 Z Schleining vs N Pogonina, 2014
dumbgai: Wow, excellent finish. Wednesday problem after 40...Kh7?
   Jul-12-14 N Batsiashvili vs N Pogonina, 2014
dumbgai: Should have taken the perpetual with 42...Qh1+.
   Jul-08-14 N Pogonina vs N Zhukova, 2014 (replies)
dumbgai: 13. Qxb7 with your own king castled queenside is just asking for trouble.

dumbgai: Very nice tactics by Zhukova. Yet another game where a greedy Qxb7 grab ends with the white king getting mated by the rooks.

dumbgai: Nobody gets to the top without hitting some bumps in the road. Even the best will have bad tournaments from time to time. Wei Yi is still a kid and will have many opportunities to do better.
   Jul-01-14 FIDE Women's Grand Prix Lopota (2014) (replies)
dumbgai: Wonder if Polgar would become more interested in the match if she gets overtaken in rating soon. I know she wouldn't state it in such a way, but it's possible Polgar never bothered playing for the women's title because she was so obviously far ahead of everyone else that such an ...

dumbgai: What does her being 2500 and FSR being 2200 have to do with anything? Is being better than someone a requirement for criticism now? We can't criticize a soccer player for missing penalty kicks because we're not professional soccer players? We can't criticize a director for making a ...
